how there's assassination attempt on colonel gaddafi, u.s. officials at the pentagon have already said they're not targeting gaddafi. that doesn't rule out that a strike took place, but i think there's some skepticism about any claims made pie this government. they're clearly operating a propaganda war as well as a war on the ground and they've been dead wrong on major statements in the past and i think there's a question mark whether this was in fact an attempt and whether that attempt happened recently, from the damage shown, it was an administration building, there's no report of casualties. gaddafi's compound itself is a huge, four block complex, it's like four city blocks surrounded by a 12 foot high wall. it's a big operation there and the administrative building is in ruins, but when it was hit, when it was destroyed, really, a question mark at this point, despite the government's claims. >> harris: yeah, very excellent points about that. pushing forward with propaganda, we should mention gaddafi has been in power there for four decades, the guy knows how to spin it. we'll see w

in benghazi and launch and offensive to retake other cities. president obama said today the u.s. will turn over leadership of the operation to other nations within days. the president and british prime minister david cameron said qaddafi must go though they insisted he is not a target of the attacks. but a cruise missile attack last night may have been too close for comfort for the libyan dictator. mark phillips is in tripoli. >> reporter: of all the targets that have been hit in these attacks, this flattened building in the qaddafi compound in tripoli is the one the qaddafi loyalists have complained about most. this is the attack they claim was launched to kill him. despite the hundreds of people who have gathered or been gathered around the complex to provide protection. >> families, children, men and women have come from everywhere to stay day and night to protect this location, to protect this location and the rocket hits only 52 to 100 meters away from them. >> reporter: qaddafi himself was probably not in his tent. he hasn't been seen since before the bombing began. his location a se
